Databases using R: The latest

January 23, 2019

Learn about the latest packages and techniques that can help you access and analyze data found inside databases using R. Many of the techniques we will cover are based on our personal and the community’s experiences of implementing concepts introduced last year, such as offloading most of the data wrangling to the database using dplyr, and using the RStudio IDE to preview the database’s layout and data. Also, learn more about the most recent improvements to the RStudio products that are geared to aid developers in using R with databases effectively.
